Recent evidence suggests that goals will be at a premium when Norwich entertain Brighton in Saturday’s Premier League relegation battle.
Both teams have failed to score in four of their last five top-flight fixtures, so we have to assume that chances may be hard to come by at Carrow Road.
Punters can get 91/100 for at least one of these sides to draw a blank and that is our initial Norwich vs Brighton prediction.
A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds
Norwich have lost all three of their Premier League games since the restart after being crushed 4-0 at Arsenal on Wednesday and a quick return to the Championship beckons.
Manager Daniel Farke insisted: “As long as we have a chance, we keep going.”
However, he admitted: “After a 4-0 defeat, I am not willing to give any fighting messages. We have to focus on our mistakes and put them right.
“The first and third goals, we invited them in. You cannot do that in key moments of the game. They punished us. We made too many mistakes.”
The Canaries may now seek to keep things tight early on here, while Brighton are usually content to ease their way into matches.
Four of Albion’s last five league matches have been 0-0 at half-time, so 33/20 for a goalless opening period appeals from the Norwich vs Brighton odds.
Last Norwich line-up: Krul, Aarons, Godfrey, Lewis, Rupp, Cantwell, Buendia, Trybull, McLean, Tettey, Pukki.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton found a free-flowing Manchester United outfit too hot to handle when going down 3-0 at Amex Stadium on Tuesday night.
However, defender Dan Burn believes the Seagulls should still be satisfied with their exploits since returning to action.
“It was a learning curve, but we’ve beaten Arsenal and we’ve drawn with Leicester, so I think we need to stay confident,” he said.
“We have got a big game on Saturday at Norwich, so we need to put this game to bed and move on.
“If you look at the quality they had and the way they finished off the counter-attacks, they deserved the win, but I think there are positives to take from the game.”
Albion are 12 points ahead of Norwich and six clear of the drop zone, so they may see this as a golden opportunity to all but cement their Premier League survival.
Let’s finish off our Norwich vs Brighton betting tips by taking 15/4 for an away win and under 2.5 goals in the game.
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Lamptey, Duffy, Dunk, Montoya, Burn, Stephens, Bissouma, Mac Allister, Propper, Connolly.
